Homesick Mac's Guitar Retreats 2017 - 2018

Christmas Guitar Retreat 2017

The 2nd annual Christmas Guitar Retreat 2017 will be held on:
  • DECEMBER 9 -10th 2017 (Saturday-Sunday)

The 2016 Christmas Guitar Retreat was the pilot retreat, suggested by the summer retreat's participants who thought it would be great with a follow up. The idea was to combine some sweet guitar playing with the traditional Swedish "Julbord" Or, let Will Ferrell tell us about it…

Oh, by the way, we will be playing guitar, of course, please read on the Christmas Guitar Retreat page

Summer Retreat 2018

The 7th annual Homesick Mac’s Guitar Retreat 2018 will be held on:
  • JULY 20th - 22nd 2018 (Friday-Sunday) for Group 1
  • JULY 23rd - 25th 2018 (Monday-Wednesday) for Group 2

News for the Retreat 2018 - singer/songwriter Maria Stille will be joining us again, this time for some individual vocal coaching in each of the groups. All participants will be able to book an own workshop with Maria and improve their singing technique.
Maria is one of the hardest working pros in southern Sweden, being regarded as a great interpreter of early jazz, hillbilly, Texas Swing, country, blues, you name it..
We’ve managed to hire Maria without increasing the prices thanks to the sponsorship from Jansson & Partners law firm (great music lovers) and Sensus Study Association.

Please subscribe to our mailing list, we send 2-3 emails a year (only, really...) and we'll let you know what's in the plans.

I'm organising my Guitar Retreat at the island of Ven in southern Sweden. You're welcome to use the info & application form to let me know which dates you're interested in participating. You can also send me a random message from here.

Thank you!
